BITE Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayons (Fall | Aubergine, Truffle)


Bite Matte Crème Lip Crayon (0.05 oz) retails for $24 USD ($28 CAD) and is currently available in 12 shades. It is said to be "a long-wear, hydrating lipstick that leaves lips with a soft, matte finish."

Aubergine is described as an eggplant.
Truffle is described as a deep brown. 
"Refresh your lip look with a bold wash of color. This BITE Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon with Reservatrol offers lip shades in beautiful nudes, striking reds, and deep burgundy hues—in a matte yet moist texture that leaves lips hydrated. Water-resistant and long-lasting, it’s formulated with orange peel wax to lock in moisture, while the resveratrol acts as an antioxidant for lips."
Please keep in mind that I previously reviewed the Bite Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Framboise and Tatin when the first round of shades were released back in July [here], so if any of this information sounds familiar, it's because it is!

The packaging is a simple, matte black pen-style-tube with a silicone texture. As I mentioned in the previous shade review, the very bottom section is no longer color coded depending on the shade (like the old style, see below) but instead, can now be popped out to revile a sharpener! They've newly updated this style of packaging so everything under the cap is color coded instead, which looks pretty but it's frustrating not being able to tell which shade is which while being stored.

The scent is somewhere on the slight citrus/herb side. The formula is opaque, soft, smooth and doesn't pull or tug at your lips when applying. The color is buildable and applies fully pigmented and even in a single swipe. For being labeled as a matte finish, these lipsticks are very comfortable to wear and I didn't find the formula drying.

Aubergine is a medium, deep purple-raspberry. Truffle is a deep brown, burgundy. They both have a satin-matte finish which can leave a slight shine depending how much you build the lipstick. The formula is lightly hydrating when worn and didn't settle into fine lines of my lips, bleed or feather. Both lipsticks are long-wearing, very pigmented and depending on the shade, left behind a stain. On average, they wore +6 hours before showing noticeable wear.

The only real downfall with these lipsticks is they are only 0.05 oz. while most other lipsticks (Bite High Pigment Pencils) are 0.09 oz. for the same price. Overall, the formula is very nice for a matte and I really like the sharpener feature built-in to the pencils packaging. Another round of shades, another round of happiness!
